Peter See Jesus' Miracles

Our lesson tonight is about the miracles that Peter witnessed Jesus doing. That may seem like a rather odd lesson to teach, but, it stresses the fact that Peter was with Jesus while He was here. The last few lessons of the month we'll talk about how Peter taught people about Jesus after He ascended to Heaven.

We will be going over miracles that the children are already familiar with since we studied Jesus' miracles last month. So, I'm going to raid the "miracles of Jesus" box and use some of the activities we had last month. The only miracle that will be new to them is when Jesus raised the widow's son.

My lesson plan is:

Before class, I'll have some of the wooden puzzles out on the table for the kids to work.

Sing: Jesus Loves Me and The B-I-B-L-E with sign language. Also sing My God Is So Big.

Magnetic Puzzle -- Peter

Sing: Peter

Review the last 2 lessons with the popup book they've been working on.

Peter Flip Chart -- We'll read the entire flip chart up to the miracles that Jesus taught.

Blacklight story -- A Boy Shares His Lunch

Attendance chart: Let the kids glue their fish to Peter and Andrew's net.

Sing Glenda Schales' Peter song.

Sing songs: The Bright Red Crab and Bumbling Bumble Bee or others of their choosing.

Review previous lessons with the Song Timeline. Concentrate on the songs about the life of Christ.

End class with a prayer. Let each child that wants to say a prayer.
